Problem P. 4734. (April 2015)
P. 4734. Three small positively charged balls of mass \(\displaystyle m\) are attached by massless insulating threads of length \(\displaystyle L\) and are placed to a horizontal smooth surface made of some insulating material. Two of the balls both have a charge of \(\displaystyle Q\) and the third is charged to \(\displaystyle 2Q\). At an instant the thread between the two balls of charge \(\displaystyle Q\) is cut off.
\(\displaystyle a)\) What are the velocities of the balls at the instant when the ball of charge \(\displaystyle 2Q\) is the fastest?
\(\displaystyle b)\) What is the tension in the threads at this moment?
\(\displaystyle c)\) What are the displacements of the balls at this moment?
